Angular Direction Service

Google Maps direction service for nearby places from a location

Introduction

Google maps provides services using which one can know what are the nearby places and some other information like distance and time to travel to those nearby places from a particular location and these API's are used in many websites .But to create an entire view and functionality one needs to write code for the same .Since this functionality is increasingly used writing code for this functionality would be like spending time on something which was already developed but not availabe .

Angular Direction Service provides ability to add the Nearby functionality just by adding HTML snippet and very less Javascript.

Installation

Using bower :

#install package and add it to bower.json dependencies
$ bower install angular-direction-service --save

<script type="text/ng-template" id="dsMapPlaces.html">
  <div>
    <div class="commute__item" ng-repeat="place in Places | limitTo:5" ng-mouseover="showDirection()" ds-each-place>
      <label ng-bind="place.name"></label>
      <span ng-bind="place.distance + ' km'"></span>
      <div><i class="car-icon-grey"></i><span ng-bind="place.duration+ ' min'"></span></div>
    </div>
  </div>
</script>
